Birtwell's fabulous career has spanned five decades. Married to Ossie Clarke (one of my favourite designer) in the seventies, the pair made some of the best floaty chiffon dresses, ever. Designs loved by the rock and roll crowd, including Bianca Jagger, Marianne Faithfull and Pattie Boyd.

The Uniqlo x Celia Birtwell collection is still available in-store and online. The range is now limited as it has been out since March 2013, but there are still some interesting items left, like this dress, this boat neck T, and this beautiful stole.
So we are saying fashion, vintage and affordable.. One item HAS to feature in my 'creative' wardrobe!
